Adjustment of Status
Andres Lopez is wondrous! During the initial consultation, he laid out my options, explained the intricacies of the situation and the likely outcome of the case. As a result, I was able to make an informed decision on how to proceed with the case and eventually obtain my Green Card. He is knowledgable, diligent, professional and honest. A special thanks to the entire Lopez Law Firm staff for handling my case effectively, and especially Erica who was sympathetic and helpful throughout the whole process. I highly recommend The Lopez Law Firm to anyone who needs assistance with any immigration-related matters.

Residency for my wife
I consulted and then hired the law firm in order to obtain legal residency for my wife when we decided to stay in the USA while she was here visiting with me. Everything went smooth, fast and as planned with her getting the residency within 6 months after applying. The staff proved to be very effective and courteous. This was the second excellent experience I have had with this firm. I would strongly advise anyone looking for immigration information to contact them. Mr. Lopez was present during the interview to give my wife the proper experienced support that she needed in front of a very nice and friendly immigration officer. We certainly will request their guidance and expertise within 3 years, when my wife can apply for her citizenship. You cannot go wrong with this kind of service when you use Mr. Lopez's law firm.

Excellent Work
When I first came to Mr. Lopez's firm, he was kind, professional, and straight forward. From that moment, I knew that I was going to hire him as my lawyer. Since the very beginning Mr. Lopez took my case, till when my case was close; he and his assistants were always giving me updates, being aware of what was going on with my case, and overall very involved. I thank God to put them in my path. Mr. Lopez fought till the end because he cares and really wants to help. Thanks to God, and all of Mr. Lopez efforts and excellent work, we won the case, and it was resolved in a very satisfactory manner. I would recommend 100% Mr. Carlos Andres Lopez and The Lopez Law Firm to anyone.

I had filed my asylum case with another lawyer and she did not work enough and not put any efforts on my application. However, after submitting my application and did the interview, I had received notification deny of my application. I just had about 10 days to respond and send a rebuttal letter to support and explain about inconsistency of my application. I decided to not go to her anymore and find another lawyer to handle my case. I was very very lucky this time that I found Attorney Mr. Carlos Lopez. He got over my case and wrote a letter for asylum office. After two weeks, my asylum was approved and they said that the letter which was written convinced us about the inconsistency of my application. Mr. Lopez is very smart, talented, gifted writer person and knows all about immigration laws and system. I would recommend him for all my friends without any hesitation.

immigration case
Andres Lopez was very knowledgable on all the aspects of my case. He kept me informed and he let me know exactly what all I would need when he took the case. Thanks to him I have my husband here with me. He's been here for a year and a half now and we couldn't be happier. I would definitely recommend Mr. Lopez to anyone that needs help with immigration issues. I have already recommended him to several friends. If I need anything else dealing with immigration, I will definitely go back to him.
